The Sunday R&R

Good Sunday Morning lovely readers and how has your weekend been so far?  It was Mother Trulove’s Birthday celebrations yesterday, so I spent the day baking and decorating for a surprise party.  On the menu a 3 tiered red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting that went down a treat!

So this week is the Wedding Magazine Awards at The Ritz in London.  I have nearly finalised by outfit, hair and make up booked and silly impractical but oh so pretty shoes at the ready!  If you are interested to see behind the scenes of the awards be sure to follow me on Instagram where I will be posting pictures.

If we were looking for breath-taking views, Monday’s real wedding in Morzine was the perfect tonic, with picture perfect views for a garden styled wedding in France

  • So much beauty. I’ve been avidly reading your inspiration Monique and next week looks absolutely stunning. Can’t wait. The wedding in Morzine made me want to forget the languedoc and get married in the mountains but we’re going to stick around….I think. I mentioned your blog in my latest post about wedding venue hunting in the south so please feel free to take a look 🙂 Thanks for all the inspiration
